Chennai: Filmmaker Sreenu Vaitla, who turned 42 on Thursday, believes the opportunity to direct megastar Chiranjeevi in his upcoming Telugu film 'Bruce Lee' is the best birthday gift he could have ever asked for.
Chiranjeevi plays a cameo alongside his son Ram Charan in 'Bruce Lee'.
"The opportunity to direct Chiranjeevi is the best birthday gift I could've asked for. I'm really looking forward to shoot with him," Vaitla told IANS.
Chiranjeevi, who will reportedly be seen in an action sequence and a song, will shoot his portion this month end.
"In the last week of September, he will join the sets. Barring two songs and some patchwork, most of the film has already been completed and we've simultaneously started working on the post-production. As planned, the film will release worldwide on October 16," he said.
The makers are on the verge of finalising an actress who will shake a leg with Ram Charan and Chiranjeevi in the song.
The film also features Rakul Preet Singh, Kriti Kharbanda and Arun Vijay in important roles.
